Weather’s turned, and I’m down with a cold. Like half of New York, it seems. But that’s ok; I’ve got a warm, healthy and delicious stew to get me through it. Don’t let the pictures fool you: this stew is as tasty as it comes. Yes, it looks a little blah. (In person as well as in the pictures.) But boy, does it pack in the taste!
This stew is rich with flavor. The base flavors are, of course, the onion, garlic, and vegetable broth. But layer on top of that the more prominent nutty flavor of the quinoa and the rich flavor of the lentils, and you’ve got a stew able to stand on its own and fight back the cold drizzle and the cold germs.
